It was a special delivery in the middle of a church parking lot. Paramedics in Tennessee jumped into action to help an expectant mother deliver her baby responding to a 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning call.

Critical Care Paramedic Fabian Oden was the one who caught the baby girl as it was born. In total four volunteer firefighters from the Maury County Department went on the call.

He says it was a very unusual situation but 911 operators helped the family get situated before they got there. After the baby was delivered, she was taken to the hospital along with her mother.

The father Jimmy Lee Farnsworth says they brought Kyler Shaydin home from the hospital: a healthy baby who was happy to meet her siblings.
